/ G.B. Lavarello
Commenced passenger and cargo services in 1864 between
Genoa, Montevideo and Buenos Aires with the wooden hulled steamship,
BUENOS AIRES. From 1867, the company commissioned further ships and extended
services to Valparaiso and Callao via Cape Horn. By 1881 the company
was in financial difficulties and in 1883 went into liquidation and their
remaining assets sold.
Many thanks to Ted Finch for his assistance in collecting this data.
